Hundreds of toads saved by patrollers
A toad rescue team that operates just outside Exeter has saved more than 700 toads, 12 newts and one solitary frog.
The operation is run by Dick and Suzanne Downer at Ebford.
The great Ebford toad migration sees warning signs put on a country lane in the village which is a known route for males and females making their way to ponds for spring-time mating.
The Downer family and a team of volunteers pitch in to help them on their way.
